    Thumbs up Of Raids and Backups

    RAID is old news with drives approaching 4 TB or surpassing. Having multiple storage devices on a network is safer. It's wasted resources packing mutiple drives in a single point of failure!

    What really matters is the performance Virtual Machines experience on the file-systems.

    I always figured JFS was a better solution because of the low performance overhead.
    This frees up CPU cycles for the Virtuals.

    That's one test I'd like to see; perhaps it's being tested but I don't recall seeing the statistics.

    Just from my experience alone, I've noticed I can't tell much difference in any of them: Ext4, JFS, XFS, BTRFS

    And it is not clear how can it scale better than existing mdraid+lvm solutions

    What we really need in linux is something like Amplidata's Distributed Storage System. That thing looks ideal for both uptime, bit rot, and data loss.
    Sort of like a next-gen zfs.

    You appear to think that 4TB is a lot of data?
